Rainy Days and Mondays..........

It is Monday and it is raining. But it is a slow spring rain and I can almost watch the grass turning green. My day lilies are shooting up in abundance and the peach tree is budding like crazy. I can see all this from the window as it rains, so instead of feeling gloomy I am anticipating a huge planting session tomorrow. Better take advantage of the rain to do all my indoor chores today, cause tomorrow I plan to play. Hey, that rhymed! What clever thing did we used to say as kids? I'm a poet and don't know it! We had a busy weekend. Apparently I am not the only one tired of winter. We had several RVers for the weekend. Good thing I stocked the marshmallows and Hershey bars along with skewers and grahams. Campfires were glowing and s'mores were on every one's menu. Our trusty work campers were here and tons of little jobs were taken care of. Next weekend will be the beginning of the huge park makeover. We have been fortunate enough to have all of our full hook-up sites rented out for the next 6 months by a crew working on the pipeline (natural gas). This leaves us with no sites to rent out to weekenders or overnighters..... So we are adding 24 more sites to accommodate that group. We wanted to expand anyway and knowing we will have a steady income will allow us to do this without borrowing any money! We have hesitated to go ahead with this project after not filling the park last season. The fuel prices just killed us---not many folks were willing to drag out the big RV's to the tune of 8mpg and down. I had posted before about trying to help a family that ended up trashing the trailer we "rented" to them, along with taking (stealing) all the items I loaned them and still owing us back rent to the tune of $1800. I said that even though I got duped that I was going to be rewarded in the end. Maybe this is my 'reward'. Of course I also think that they will be 'rewarded', too. As I reread what I have written I realize that I am boring when I am content with the world, so I will end this post and wait for Drew to further inspire me...... It won't be long.......

That's exactly it isn't it-- we all see the world and each other so differently, looking through not only different eyes but different experiences and preconceptions and opinions. Those distort everything. How does anyone ever find the truth? Is there a real truth or only just the truth as we each individually see it?

Wow, too deep for Monday.

You made me want a s'more!

I think you will have a good year in the park. Gas prices are down, and people are thinking small vacations, not big ones. Perfect for dragging our the trailer and getting out for some fresh air and new sights. We've been talking about renting an RV and taking a cross-country trip. Makes me miss my little travel trailer we sold because we weren't using it. We could have come visited you!
